The extremely controversial case last year at the Supreme Court where the Court determined that the individual mandate of Obamacare was a constitutional exercise of Congress’ tax power. That case was a good example of a case involving the scope of Federal power. However, there are other issues involving Obamacare that have to do with the process of government; that is, there are not only Constitutional issues with what was done (did it exceed Congress’ authority or not), but how it was done. These issues …Read More »
It has become abundantly clear that reclaiming and restoring the United States to its previous greatness will come at a great cost to those who dare to engage in the fight. We’ve always known that on an intellectual level, but the past 48 hours have shown how downright barbaric the battle may be. Those who attempt to return the country to its constitutional ideals will face withering attacks by statists bent on maintain their power.
For me, the evidence came in two events. The first was …Read More »
Had a chance to sit through a “forum” for the Virginia Gubernatorial candidates and heard a classic argument that I’m sure many of us have heard a lot over the last year or two:

Democratic and Republican leaders are taking the issue seriously, but first they need more …Read More »
Be sure and head to your local Democrat headquarters for information and tickets. President Obama may be coming to your town!
Remember ‘The Summer of Recovery’? Now it’s ‘The summer of ObamaCare’
This comes during a time when Obamacare still remains wildly unpopular and despite years later, the federal government still fails to meet deadlines for its implementation.
The administration is organizing their own various campaigns to get the good progressive word out to the largely uninformed public in time, and with the administration’s and the Democrats’ interests …Read More »
Last week, the state of California claimed that its version of Obamacare’s health insurance exchange would actually reduce premiums. “These rates are way below the worst-case gloom-and-doom scenarios we have heard,” boasted Peter Lee, executive director of the California exchange. But the data that Lee released tells a different story: Obamacare, in fact, will increase individual-market premiums in California by as much as 146 percent.
One of the most serious flaws with Obamacare is that its blizzard of regulations and mandates drives up the cost of …Read More »
